A Week of Book Club - My Life In France by Julia Child

"Our first lunch together in France had been absolute perfection.  It was the most exciting meal of my life."

"Instead I had married Paul Child, a painter, photographer, poet, and mid-level diplomat who had taken me to live in dirty, dreaded France. I couldn't have been happier!"

"I was thirty seven years old and still  discovering who I was."

"I lit a match and turned on the four burner cuisiniere; the stove made a dramatic pouf! noise when the gas lit, which scared everyone but made me smile."
